I spend way more time with the pets in the home than with him anyway. We sit and watch movies and tv and we play a lot of games but the fish and cat and bunny require my attention. I like spending time with them. I miss having a dog because it was motivation to get out and exercise. In the 6 months that I have been without my dog I have gained all kinds of weight. I need another terrier!!! gaah! I think when I had the dog though, my bf was a bit jealous. After coming home from work or school I'd always greet the dog first, not because I don't love my bf, but because the poor dog was so attached to me and had serious anxiety issues that he needed to know things would be okay!
